Can anybody confirm that these 1st pattern badges were only accepted as stand-alone originals just a few years ago?

I just seem to remember a thread at WAF that questioned these and suggested that they may have been early Assman badges.

Perhaps I dreamed it though.....

(I am not hinting that they are anything but original of coures!)

I will search for the thread in the meantime

Thanks for the link John.

These pre-war paras are very different from their later bretheren.

The first time I came across them was from pictures of Neil Howes early Junker with the unit and name inscription.

After a search,I think this is the thread I mentioned earlier:


These are obviously pretty rare then-certainly more so than the wartime badges.

I must say though,in purely visual terms,I prefer the second style of eagle(wouldn't say no to one of 'em however!)
